'06 6.0 Powerstroke Long Crank To Start


Extremely intermittent & no codes thrown.

it always starts.

it has always fired right up when i hit the starter.

warm or cold and no telling when or why.

any ideas?

EGR valve, EGR cooler(Bullet proof diesel) & oil cooler being replaced next week. Turbo will also be checked out.

any ideas????

My first guess would be an injector issue.

But I'm a nail bender, not a mechanic, so take that for what it's worth.

But I did have that same issue with my powerstroke, and it was injectors.

Weak fuel pump. Turn the ignition on without starting it. Wait 10 seconds and see if it starts normally.

If it does it's one of two possibly, weak pump, leaky fuel system.

Change both the batteries. Check the charging system also.

Did it start after the new batteries?

John Wood who used to be on here had a V10 that would do that if the battery got disconnected for any reason. Would last a few weeks then be fine again.

If it's doing it hot or cold I'd have to speculate fuel delivery issue.

Could be a failing hpop (High pressure oil pump) or issue with the system. It won’t build enough pressure to fire the injectors.

Forgot about the HPOP. Been in a Cummins for so long.


That's exactly what my '04 PowerStroke did right before the HPOP finally bought the farm late one night.


Not a cheap repair. It's in the botttom of the engine.

I asked a friend who works on the 6.0 fairly frequently.

He said the ICP sensor and the wire pigtail.
The FICM.
The camshaft position sensor.
The HPOP.
